How are you doing today? I’ve been doing really well, but really busy! In the past few days I’ve taught yoga classes, taken a few yoga classes, and today got hired at another yoga studio! I’m up to 5 now! The only downside is lots of driving around and as I’m learning, Phoenix and the Valley is super sprawling and spread out, but hey, I’m employed, no complaints!
And no, I don’t stay for a 45 minute blow-out. I leave with wet hair and therefore it dries hippy wavy style, not sleek-n-smooth. As if I have the luxury to have someone brush and blowdry my hair for 45 minutes with this little peanut in tow.
Who’s been sick. Life’s tough when neither your bananas, saltines, nor your mini Twix bar are workin’ for ya.
So I’ve had the normal busyness of life in pre-holiday running around like a crazy woman mode! What have you been up to?

And those pants were sure a hit…glad you enjoyed my hippy tie-dye action as much as I do!
Today I ate a grapefruit to keep my Vitamin C levels up with the Germy Kidlet near. I need to ward off the sickies for myself! And even if some people don’t love them…just playing with ya girl :)
I happen to love a nice grapefruit. But I sprinkle sugar on it. Shhhh…don’t tell SugarBusters!
For a snack there was a nibble of a Kettle Corn Pro Bar
Not for the dieting crowd at 400 calories for a small square. This is where it’s handy to have a ravished toddler to help share this bad boy.
But definitely really tasty, chewy, moist, with that coveted sweet-n-savory thing going on.
Dinner Entailed Kale, Brussles, Tomatoes, and Cauli with my Homemade Vegan Slaw Dressing
Dessert was a Raw Vegan Gingerbread Cookie
And a Few Gingerbread Cookie Dough Balls.
Speaking of which, The Fitness Freak sent in her lovely photo showing how she made my Raw Vegan Gingerbread Balls! Part of what she did was as follows: “1/2 cup each of almonds and walnuts with the 1/4 cup of flax seed then added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. cardamom. I added the agave as the processor was going until it stuck together then scooped them onto a plate to refrigerate”
Thanks for sending the pic, Nicole, you know I love you!
Yoga Today is Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle)
Great for opening up the hips, hamstrings, and lower back. Runners especially, take note. But everyone is just so gosh darn tight in the hips, hammies, and back, we can all benefit.
Tip of the Day: Making Pretty Cucumber Slices…Sheri asked me how I get my cucumbers to look so pretty?
Easy! Peel the cuke, then run a fork down the cuke, encompassing it vertically, then slice it as usual. You’ll end up with “Pretty Slices”!
Random question….do you tip your service professionals or even waiters/waitresses extra during the holiday season? I was going to tip extra today, on top of what I already tipped, at the salon, but I confess, I didn’t. With my old guy in San Diego, I did tip more in December because I saw him all year and it was like his bonus or gift from me, but for someone who I’ve only seen twice, I didn’t. What do you do with tipping in general and with the holidays? Do you overtip? Undertip…yikes, I hope not! Talk to me about tippin’!
